From Archbishop Malcolm June 2014
Assisted Dying Bill: The Bill to legalise “assisted dying” – meaning assisted suicide – will be debated in the House of Lords on 18 July 2014. There will be a free vote because it is not government legislation. If passed, this Bill would place vulnerable people at serious risk. Especially if you have direct experience of caring for a dying person, either as a family member or as a health or social care professional, please write before 18 July to a Peer to tell them your views. For more information, including details of how to write to a Peer, please visit: www.catholicchurch.org.uk/assisted-dying-bill
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO WRITE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND CERTAINLY BEFORE 18 JULY.
